Laminate worktops are practical and highly cost effective, but still suffer from a image born of poor 1970's quality and ugly metal joining strips.
But time, and quality, have come a long way with a modern German laminates now providing a quality alternative to the more expensive stone or composite offerings.
Modern bespoke design, the ability to form the worktop to virtually any shape, including circular, and the availability of many colours means they provide a flexible and inexpensive solutions to your worktop choice. In fact, German laminates from Nobilia are manufactured to your design from your kitchen plans. So if you can draw it, Nobilia can make it. No more cutting and fitting on site.
And these modern laminates only need to be joined when they negotiate corners. Even then, with a proper mitre fixing, this only leaves a hair line join.
Nobilia laminates are available up to a maximum length of 5.1 metres with a maximum thickness of 1170mm but also down to 13mm in slim line form. They offer a good quality, cost effective alternative to more traditional worktop materials.
In fact a forgotten modern alternative that should be given much more consideration for a modern designer kitchen.
